HEGLA presents innovative, automated and cutting solutions live at the Glasstec

On over 1600m² of floor space, HEGLA is exhibiting machines and entire systems in live operation. Glasstec visitors can once again see and experience technology at close hand.

New ProLam - a flexible combined solution

Among the innovations and developments presented at the HEGLA booth, there will be the new ProLam – a flexible combined solution for cutting float glass and laminated safety glass. Innovations include a modified cutting bridge and optimised processes. Additional features and equipment enhance the applications of ProLam, which is one of HEGLA's best-selling systems. The infeed table now has low-maintenance electromagnetic linear drives that impress with high acceleration and accuracy of the cutting bridge when cutting float glass and during edge deletion.


Innovation: "RapidLam Shape" a new addition to the product portfolio for cutting shapes in laminated safety glass

RapidLam Shape, a new addition to the product portfolio for cutting shapes in laminated safety glass, will also be shown for the first time. It was specially conceived for cutting shapes from smaller glass formats.

Galactic with electromagnetic linear drives and just above the ReMaster

Visitors of the HEGLA booth will also be impressed by the Galactic, which is equipped with electromagnetic linear drives to provide precision and agility in high-performance cutting of float glass.


Reduce wastage and handling costs

Installed just above the Galactic cutting system, the ReMaster remnant sheet storage system reduces wastage and handling costs to a minimum. It stores usable residual glass until it can be optimally used for further cutting. This also prevents damages from manual handling and eliminates the time required to find glass pieces that have been put aside.


Auto-Sorting System SortJet

Even more automation is available through the implantation of the auto-sorting system SortJet, what is installed at the end of the cutting line. Whereby it fully automates the processes of sorting out, alignment and intermediate buffering of glass panes. The glass panes are picked up from the optimised cutting sequence of the cutting system and stored in the dynamic buffer of the SortJet, where they are either supplied directly to the IG line in the required production sequence or provided offline. Suitable software can provide further profound optimisation potential which goes far beyond the possibilities of manual handling and cutting plans.


Cutting Lines supplied with glass from Rapidstore shuttle storage by Rapidloader floor loading sytem

The two cutting lines, dominated by ProLam and Galactic, are supplied with glass from the Rapidstore shuttle storage by the Rapidloader floor loading system, which is also on display for the first time at the trade fair. The glass panes are initially kept as packets on space-saving storage racks. Following the specifications in the cutting plan, the shuttle then picks up a rack with unmixed types of glass and transports it to the direct pick-up location of the floor loading system. The shuttle then returns the remaining glass panes to the storage block.


With Rapidstore, it is easy to extend current storage capacities at any stage to provide a floor or gantry loading system with direct access to a wider variety of glass. Since the storage system is purely floor-mounted, it is also suitable for shallow hall areas with no crane. If the racks are arranged across various buildings, they can be moved to an adjacent area suitable for loading.


Thanks to a new paternoster, HEGLA fulfils customer wishes for a space-saving vertical storage solution which makes optimal use of otherwise wasted space. This compact vertical compartment system enables material up to 6m long, such as spacers, to be stored horizontally. The object is either collected from the front face or from the front end. The handling process is significantly simplified and less time is required.

HEGLA can be found at the Glasstec in hall 14, floor space 56

Our preferred partner Bystronic glass, with whom we maintain a long-term cooperative partnership, is located right in front of us. "Our booths are located side by side and goes on to show how well our cooperation really functions. Customers who wish to obtain comprehensive information on cutting and insulating glass solutions benefit from the combined expertise of both companies", points out Managing Director Manfred Vollbracht.
